By the time Christopher Columbus landed on the shores of North America in 1492, it was already home to three hundred Native American nations. Each of these nations had an established society, its own territory, language, and life-style. Within the pages of this series, the Indians of four American regions come to life. Each book includes dozens of colorful illustrations and photographs that help capture the traditions, history, social customs, and governing systems of many tribes. The Native Americans offers a spirited perspective and exploration of America's diverse native people and their rich cultural history.
